Voices I

Psalm 27:8 “My heart has heard you say, “Come and talk with me.” And my heart responds, “Lord, I am coming.”

The ability to hear God’s voice is one thing I am totally grateful for and by God’s grace, it pleases Him to speak to me. However, even when I have heard God, I stay there – waiting and watching – maintaining the posture of hearing from God. Read the rest of this entry

Be Present!

Phillip.2:8 “He humbled himself and became vulnerable, choosing to be revealed as a man and was obedient. He was a perfect example, even in his death—a criminal’s death by crucifixion!” (TPT).

To get up and to walk in resurrection power, to be all that we were made to be, to arise and to shine in the brightness that God has made for us, firstly we must know the Living Jesus, that Jesus Christ is alive. Secondly, we must know the King Jesus, that Jesus Christ is King. Read the rest of this entry

Not With Ahab!

Prov. 29:24 “You are your own worst enemy when you partner with a thief, for a curse of guilt will come upon you when you fail to report a crime.” (TPT)

Success is almost never a one man show. Nobody does it alone, nobody! We need each other, which is why you need to be part of a church community. For your ship to get out of the harbour and for your ship to set sail, you have to have the correct Read the rest of this entry

Power Two

Eccl. 4:9 “Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. It’s better to have a partner than go it alone.” (NLT & MSG).

In the past few days, we have been learning about the five things we have to do to ensure that our ships set sail and not get wrecked at the harbour. First, stop Accusing And Excusing; Read the rest of this entry

Do It Now!

Eccl. 11:4 “Farmers who wait for perfect weather never plant. If they watch every cloud, they never harvest.”

Prov. 6:4 “Don’t procrastinate—there’s no time to lose.” (MSG). Most times, we just waste time. There is not going to be an ideal time, start it now! Just get it done! Do not waste time, the conditions are not going to be perfect. Read the rest of this entry

Stop It!

1 Kings 22:48 “Now Jehoshaphat built a fleet of trading ships to go to Ophir for gold, but they never set sail–they were wrecked at Ezion- Geber.” (NIV)

By the grace of God, as a Pastor, I am committed to seeing the people God has called me to, fulfil their destiny. It is my life’s commitment. Our lives must glorify God. God must look at us and say, ‘these are My children’. Read the rest of this entry

Seeker Heart I

Matt.12:20 “A bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out,
till he has brought justice through to victory.”

Jesus could not resist Mary’s love and thirst for Him. Jesus said, ‘Ma-ry!’ and even though Mary did not recognize Him facially, she recognized that nickname, that special way Jesus calls her. The Bible says, Read the rest of this entry

This Too

John 19:19,21-22  “And Pilate posted a sign on the cross that read, “Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews.” …Then the leading priests objected and said to Pilate, “Change it from ‘The King of the Jews’ to ‘He said, I am King of the Jews.’” Pilate replied, “No, what I have written, I have written.”

John 19:38-39Afterward Joseph of Arimathea, who had been a secret disciple of Jesus (because he feared the Jewish leaders), asked Pilate for permission to take down Jesus’ body. When Pilate gave permission, Joseph came and took the body away. With him came Nicodemus, the man who had come to Jesus at night. He brought about seventy-five pounds of perfumed ointment made from myrrh and aloes.” Read the rest of this entry

After This

Zec. 13:6 “And if someone asks, ‘Then what about those wounds on your chest?’ he will say, ‘I was wounded at my friends’ house!’”

John 18:1After saying these things, Jesus crossed the Kidron Valley with his disciples and entered a grove of olive trees.” (emphasis added). After saying what things? After casting the vision and the long prayer in John 17, talk time was over, prayer time was over. Read the rest of this entry

The Privilege

John 16:23 “At that time you won’t need to ask me for anything. I tell you the truth, you will ask the Father directly, and he will grant your request because you use my name.” (emphasis added).

Jesus changes gear here and introduces us to another privilege of Him going away. Jesus says you and I can go straight to the Father in His Name just as He does. Just as the disciples saw Him do the tomb of Lazarus in John 11 and as they will still see Him do in John 17. Read the rest of this entry
